The Fred Astaire Dance Studios at 303 East 43rd Street
are offering a free introductory course to TBA members. It will
include a half-hour group lesson (class of about 12 people), a half-hour
private lesson, and one party. The parties are held on Friday nights

Offer good until June 1.
The Census Bureau is sending out its troops to round up

as well as under-funded, just don't open your doors to the census-takers.
